“Tell me if this is wrong: Justin Bieber [is] 100 percent like watching Vanilla Ice all over again. It’s exactly the same,” Kid Rock says. When Stern mentions that Vanilla Ice was a one-hit wonder, Rock adds, “As soon as Bieber has a hit, he’ll be like Vanilla Ice, then.”
Beliebers will likely take fault with that comment, as Bieber can count a string of hits behind him. Still, Kid Rock seems more concerned for Bieber than anything else.
“The kid’s young, he’s got some money, he’s got the world in his hands, it’s just kind of sad to see him go down this trajectory,” Kid Rock says. “It’s going to be a very long ride down. We all know the story. I kind of feel for the kid, to be honest with you.”
